I'm wondering what Mrs Ciampi feels about this and I'm wondering what Mr Ciampi puts in his coffee - he's 85 years old for goodnessakes....

TOPIC STARTER
I should hope so too! Nov 30, 2005

I did write to them and ask them to consider getting someone to revise it ...
I'm still trying to figure out what on earth it was a typo for.
Any ideas?
Angela

PS - it was spotted by some friends of mine at an embassy in Rome and they are now fighting over invites to President Ciampi's next cocktail party....

Well, it'll need one of you INS to figure it out, but I was thinking along the lines of 'brought pleasure to' / 'delighted' / 'pleased' ???

Are you sure you've got the right typo? Dec 1, 2005

If you replace "mountain" with "mounting", the whole thing makes perfect sense....

(OK, sorry, maybe we need a "could be offensive" marker for the forums as well...)

Just a guess Dec 1, 2005

The typo could either be "buck" (buck up) or Mr. excitement made an exceptionally good use of the V tablet.
